After the release of Section.80 back in July of last year Kendrick Lamar was hailed as the prince of the west. The album received much critical acclaim and quickly rose to most people’s, top 5 album of the year list. Kendrick’s fan base has been waiting patiently for another dose of the west-coast emcee’s brilliant wordplay and illuminative lyrics.
In an interview with GowhereHipHop Kendrick told his fans that his next release, good kid, m.A.A.d city, will be different from, Section.80. “I love the element of surprise, I didn’t want to do nothing the same way as Section.80. I always want to challenge myself and take it to the next level.” With Kendrick, different doesn’t scare us. It just leaves us asking ourselves, what more can this kid do to creatively distinguish himself, after his unmatched performance on Section.80?
In an interview with Tim Westwood, Kendrick stated that he has already recorded 40 songs for the upcoming album. “I’ve probably done about 40 records. I’ll narrow it down to like 13.” Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just get all 40? We are looking forward to this highly anticipated album release, which should be coming October of this year.
